Spongy Moth Aerial Spray 

The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protec​tion (DATCP) uses aerial spraying every spring and summer, mainly in western Wisconsin, to slow the s​pread of spongy moth​. DATCP sprays to kill spongy moth caterpillars in May and early June. In la​te June and July, the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service applies mating disruptors by spraying via a plan​e to prevent the adult moths from mating.​​​  More information including maps of locations can be found at datcp.wi.gov.




Land Disturbance activities may require an Erosion Control or Stormwater permit. 

More information is available by clicking the Erosion Control/Stormwater tab.
